Machhapuchhre the fish tailed mountain is believed to be one of the homes of Lord Shiva. At the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, you will see Annapurna 1, South Annapurna, Gangapurna, and Hiunchuli up close. You come across variety of vegetation surrounded by fern, bamboo and rhododendrons. At Sinuwa forest gets dense you see a lot of Oak trees. When you move higher towards deurali, the forest gives way to tall grass.
You will find trees that are used to make paper by the locals and are called Daphne. You pass through roaring river called Modi Khola. The Annapurna Conservation area is home of 474 birds, 102 mammals, flowering plants and creatures. Food will be served at teahouse in Nepali cuisine. Ghandruk is the biggest village in this area. Pokhara is the gateway to Annapurna region. Kongrong is located on top of a ridge. We descend from Kongrom towards kimrong and cross kimrong khola. Chomrong is the gateway towards Annapurna Sanctuary.
The trail to Sinuwa is lined with tree and forests and from there you will be entering Sanctuary area. As you reach bamboo you can hear gushing sound of running river Modikhola. Ascending to Dovan is a most beautiful walks of this trek. From Dovan gradual and steep ascent leads to Machhapuchhre base camp.
After coming from Deurali to Machhapuchhre base camp and two and half hours you will reach Annapurna base camp. It is an Alpine terrain with grasslands on rocky mountain. Then you will be heading the same trail back to bamboo. This is perhaps the longest trek. From Bamboo, we head to Jhinu Danda and trek to Nayapul where this Annapurna Base Camp Trek ends. Then we leave for Kathmandu for the final departure.
